Finnix is a small, self-contained, bootable Linux CD distribution ("LiveCD") for system administrators, based on Debian testing. You can use it to mount and manipulate hard drives and partitions, monitor networks, rebuild boot records, install other operating systems, and much more.
Garbure is a collection of dedicated distributions. Each distribution provides carefully selected tools for a specific target domain, and is completed with examples and documentation. The set of distributions forms an entity, but each distribution works also on its own. All elements are arranged in the same way for each distribution.
Instant-Grid is a Knoppix-based live-CD bundled with a pre-configured grid environment based on the Globus Toolkit. One PC started from this CD becomes the Instant-Grid frontend. It also functions as a PXE boot-server, allowing other PCs in the same local network to boot the Instant-Grid environment. Together with the frontend, these PCs automatically form a working test grid. Like with the original Knoppix, the existing configuration of the participating PC is not touched (except maybe for enabling the PXE boot-option), and remains instantly available by a simple reboot.
Rocks is a complete "cluster on a CD" solution for x86 and IA64 Red Hat Linux COTS clusters. Building a Rocks cluster does not require any experience in clustering, yet a cluster architect will find a flexible and programmatic way to redesign the entire software stack just below the surface (appropriately hidden from the majority of users). Although Rocks includes the tools expected from any clustering software stack (PBS, Maui, GM support, Ganglia, etc), it is unique in its simplicity of installation.
OpenLab is the oldest African-developed GNU/Linux distribution. Started in 2001, it has built up a well-deserved reputation for ease-of-use, innovation, and user-oriented design. It was originally developed as a niche solution for the education sector, but has grown into a complete desktop operating system well suited to the home desktop, small business, and many other environments. Developed using principles from extreme programming, with constant involvement of a wide-range of participants in the process with frequent re-evaluation of designs, OpenLab is an innovative, vibrant, and above all fun platform that continuously evolves to meet the real needs of the desktop market.
Portable Linux is a tool that lets you create bootable USB and removable drives using popular Live CDs based on Casper (like the Ubuntu family of distributions). It sports some unique features. The live setups it creates let you use the remaining disk space on your USB drive to store and transport files between computers, as usual. If your distribution supports persistence, the files and settings you edit on your live Linux distribution are persisted across reboots. Finally, you can access the area used to store your files from within your Linux distribution.
